Donald A. Lussier, 84, of North Chelmsford, MA passed away Saturday, March 5, 2022 at Emerson Hospital in Concord, MA.
He was married to Jeannine (Sawyer) Lussier with whom he would have celebrated their 59th wedding anniversary on August 10th.
Born in Lowell, MA, Donald was the son of the late Valmore and Florence (Guilbeault) Lussier.
Donald proudly served with the U.S. Navy in the Korean War Era. After his time in the service, he was employed by Demoulas Market for many years where he served as an assistant store manager. After leaving Demoulas, Donald began to hang drywall as a self-employed sub-contractor. Donald retired after 40 years in the drywall industry.
He was a man who didn’t need much to be happy. He appreciated what he had and never asked for much. He only cared for the true gifts in life, peace and love. He had an endless stream of compassion for others. There was not a soul who met him who did not feel his genuine care and respect. His heart was open, kind, caring, patient and forgiving. He was the presence of an angel and a gift to this world! His family will forever be touched by the gifts of wisdom he left in each of their hearts and will do their best to walk this world carrying those on. He enjoyed being in his beautiful yard and gardens that he cared for with so much joy. He spent decades creating last memories with his family there, ones that will live on forever! Life was better with his smile, laugh and pillar of light he bestowed upon all.
Besides his wife, Donald is survived by his son and his wife James and Shirley Lussier of Hudson, NH, his two daughters; Therese Marsh of Nashua, NH, Cynthia Lussier-Morse of N. Chelmsford, MA, his brother and his wife Paul and Darlene Lussier of Derry, NH, his four sisters; Aline LaRoche of Arizona, Rachel and her husband Henry Desroches of Florida, Dora Pintal of Dracut, MA, Diane Sullivan of Dracut, MA, his sister-in-law Darlene Lussier of Chelmsford, MA, his five grandchildren, three great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews.
